Five years ago the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service set a five-year goal of 500 adult Least Terns and 125 fledglings per year along the Arkansas River in Oklahoma.  A recent survey found 619 adults and 211 fledglings, which is simply great!  And, if you happen to be visiting Tulsa, Oklahoma, you can apparently see breeding Least Terns on islands just south of the 11th St bridge.
